Safety First

Liberals are up in arms (ha!) over the prospect of gun-toting security personnel stationed in our public schools. But advocates of such measures are only being realistic, looking at an insanely violent society and responding in kind. This is the new rationalism and conservatives seem less sentimental when it comes to survival in a barbaric system. But why stop at armed guards at schools? After all, anywhere children go they are under threat by crazed gunmen intent on slaughter. This is America. Certainly we should have armed school bus drivers, cross walk monitors and play ground supervisors. There should be armed guards at stores and malls and eating establishments ( I'm thinking of Happy Meals here) as well as day-care facilities and churches. Ultimately of course, the solution is to arm the children themselves, a Youth Force trained and equipped to defend itself against the pathological adult world.

You forget, trout, if everyone carried it would solve the problem.
I wonder if Wayne LaPierre ever watched a few episodes of "The Wire". No shortage of firearms in that show.

But this will all fade quickly. The movers and shakers are all out at Davos cooking up some austerity for us all.

We'd better back away from space exploration or those Romulans might get us huh, Ducky?

Ducky- there are very few gun murders in our prisons. Just sayin.

All this gun violence must be appealing to the friend of the nearly dead Hugo Chavez. They seem to just love to shoot each other in the Workers Paradise.

Sadly cancer will claim Hugo before he could end up like his good friend the wacky Col.
